i just. i don't know. i currently have the half rounds from d'addario on my schecter. i really loved how they felt and sounded but after about a month they just sound dull unless i play them hard and no matter how i adjusted the sound on both my amp and bass i hated the sound. and when i play them hard, they clack on the frets and it sounds crappy. now i really want a tone that cuts through like rounds. but i don't want to give up the boomy low end which is necessary for a good show for us. i'm not really looking for a cutting sound that's super edgy like in metal or punk even. kind of like a chili peppers tone in the song "Snow." it's boomy but there's a distinctive tone to it also. but if i get the sound that boomy on my setup i lose all of my tone. any string suggestions? or maybe even something else?
